This half-day or full day highly experiential and applied workshop explores how our “implicit biases,” “sense of privilege,” and our tendencies to affiliate with similar others at work affect our perceptions and attitudes toward co-workers from different cultural backgrounds, ethnicities, and gender. Participants practice a variety of different skills and techniques for effectively communicating with others from different backgrounds and experiences, and managing conflicts or disagreements that emanate from cultural background and/or gender differences. This workshop can be tailored for executives, managers, and line employees.
Workshop Learning Objectives
"I think the workshop was very effective and will make my work life and even my productivity greater going forward for easing communications with others that I work with. My experience has always been that until we find common ground by hearing each others’ stories, we tend to see only differences, and that seeing chiefly differences makes us more likely to stay in our comfort zones and just opt out. That makes for a cooler, less supportive work environment and makes our actual work less than it could be for lacking those collaborative opportunities."
"Just a note of thanks for supporting the Communicating Across Cultures workshop. I truly appreciated the chance to find and celebrate common ground with my colleagues."
